asiatica: gorgeous eco fashion

Asiatica features a one-of-a-kind collection made from recycled vintage kimonos and state-of the-art Japanese textiles.

Founded in 1976 by designer Elizabeth Wilson in Kansas City, Asiatica tailors fashionable pieces from both vintage Japanese kimonos and contemporary Nuno fabrics (a Japanese textile manufacturer). Nuno textiles incorporate nontraditional materials like silk waste, maize fiber and metals for unique textures.
